Daniel Ingram – Flawless (Paloris Remix) | Indie Dance / Future Bass

Paloris’ debut pony music upload on their channel is definitely not their first musical contribution to the community, with tracks such as Feeling Free and Smiles, and that experience definitely shows in this impressive remix of the now classic Flawless! A punchy kick is driving energy through the track filled with both the original vocals and vocal chops, and the composition and sound design are much creative and pay much tribute to the meaningul original from the show!

Daniel Ingram – The True Gift of Gifting (Nicolas Dominique Remix) | Synthwave

After quite a while, the prolific Nicolas Dominique has released another show song remix! The atmosphere on this tune is quite somber, fitting of the tone of Spike’s song to Rarity from the new holiday special. The vocal cutting on this track is impressive, the piano accompaniment screams vintage early EDM, and the synthwave-y vibes are so deep. As of this posting, it’s the only existing remix of the lovely song from Spike, so check it out!

strigidae – round red radish | Indie Dance

Even with the upcoming finals, strigidae managed to share with us his latest fluffy song, always with a cute name! Although this time it’s about villainous Tempest, resisting to reforming! A tribute to our beloved mare and her wonderful character depth all the same, this new song is full of strigidae’s signature style and unique vocals, and a real bliss, as well as a new chance to partake in pony emotions!

[P@D] ThatMusicBrony – Thoughts | Indie Dance

ThatMusicBrony has such a way to call for emotion in this mastepiece from another realm, where incredible vocals are complementing a rich instrumental of insane compositional prowess. The vocals sound so genuine and like they were sung with much emotion in the first place, and it results in such a surge of emotion that we can feel from them. That deep bass is also such a classic way to create powerful emotion, and it is used quite masterfully here. The sound design and soundcape is stunning as well, and it feels like our soul is witnessing some out-of-this-world sight. This musical experience sure feels otherworldly, as powerful emotions overwhelm the listener while this masterpiece unfolds. At least that’s what it did for me! My second favorite from Ponies at Dawn Enigma, based on the emotion that I felt…

[ASOS] Brohoof Studios & Dreamtech – Alone (feat. Haymaker) | Synthwave

Well now, Hoofy just keeps on improving his production, eh? Always fond of retro aesthetics, he went totally synthwave with this one. He and Dreamtech’s production, especially during the drop, is lush and features some gorgeous chords. However, Haymaker really steals the show here. His delivery is sublime as always and conveys the somber tone of the song excellently (something he’s shown he’s great at on the legendary Luna’s Ruse). Check it and the rest of A State of Sugar’s Bubblegum out above!

[ASOS] TCB – Only One (R3CTIFIER Remix) | Indie Dance

My favorite track from A State of Sugar Bubblegum is what I believe is a very fine example of the otherworldly power of pony vocal chops, and Passion. Covering the original melodies from TCB‘s original track in a brand new genre and different progression, R3CTIFIER took a certain vocal part from the original and decided to focus on it for this remix. That was quite the amazing vision, as those certain chops from Your Heart Is in Two Places, along that newly crafted atmosphere, are precisely what is triggering so much emotion when I listen to it, to the point that I can’t help but tear up. We love those characters, so hearing their voices like this is very powerful… or so seems to be the logic behind this phenomenon. In any case, I’ll always be grateful to life, and to musicians like R3CTIFIER and TCB for making such powerful emotions happen..!

strigidae – fluffy blackberry pie (UndreamedPanic’s ‘Hold On’ Reimagined) | Indie Dance

Strigidae is on a roll with the very fluffy and fuzzy releases! After the cuddly fuzzy purple pancakes focusing on Starlight (and Trixie), this one is centered around Tempest aka Fizzlepop Berrytwist from the movie! Beautifully reimagining the original collab with UndreamedPanic Hold On, Strigidae pays much tribute to the very loveable pony with this new song, imbuing her character depth and the Mane 6’s feelings for her in it. A wonderful fan song, and a much joyous occasion! Let us reminisce about the events of the movie and think about what we feel for Tempest, as we listen to the song and imagine some magical fireworks unfolding before our mesmerized eyes…

Cute, soft tunes are the order of the day from strigidae most of the time, but this time the production levels feel higher than normal, and the energy is a step up too, with some awesome use of fun tropical-feeling sound design and vocal chanting to go with the main vocals. Check it out for some great vibes about Starlight and Trixie!

Exiark & FritzyBeat – Behind | Indie Dance

NB: This was originally posted on Equestria Daily on 11 March 2018.

The release of Exiark’s recent album Otherworldly Journey was something I was super excited to hear, and this track in collaboration with FritzyBeat is definitely one of the more upbeat releases from it. Featuring some lovely pop-y production, it fits Fritzy’s terrific vocals very well, and the use of vocal chops from some old Feather music is also a lovely touch.

FruityFusion – Deep Twist | Midtempo / Synthwave

FruityFusion is back with a retro Midtempo track! Taking the listener to the 80’s with that amazing synthesizer work, Fruity also bring modernism with the fast and uplifting beat. Feels like if a female voice was singing on this, would be the perfect mix! This track is really well done, more one to save in the retro files! Good job Fruity!
